Two weeks after filing for divorce and just days after revealing she endured physical abuse in her marriage, Taylor is now being sued alongside her estranged husband Russell Armstrong for $1.5 million in an alleged internet scam.
In the lawsuit filed Friday in L.A. Superior Court, MyMedicalRecords.com alleges the two pocketed more than $1 million from people by misleading them into thinking they were investing in the company.
The suit claims Taylor and Russell, who is described as a venture capitalist, “successfully and secretly” funneled money away from MMR and into their own pockets.
The company is also accusing the duo, whose sketchy passed was unvieled earlier this year, of misusing the funds to “live a lavish lifestyle” including paying for interior decorating on their mansion, and investing in a fancy restaurant with actress Eva Longoria.
Taylor has yet to comment on the lawsuit while Russell’s attorney claims MMR is struggling economically and describes the lawsuit as “groundless” and a “shakedown.”
